i went to Tai Po on Sunday afternoon. Tai Po is a small city in Northern Territories on the East side, next to Tolo Harbour. I went up there to search for the Railways Museum. As expected, I got quickly lost in the small streets and the market area. It ia very lively place with many stalls selling fruits, vegetables, dry fish, fresh fish, meat, all at ambient temperature (30+). I saw only five gaijins in the afternoon in Tai Po.
Finally found the train museum next to the tracks. A lovely old station in Chinese style (the only one on the line) is welcoming you. You can walk on the tracks, enter old passenger cars and visit the station itself.
A lot of kids everywhere. The museum is free. The shop was closed but I managed to get it opened and purchased 3 postcard packs on Hong Kong Train history !
I then walked up to Tai Wo station where the commercial center is definitely 21st century and came back to Hung Hom station, terminus of the blue line. It’s a kind of island surrounded by highways. I then walked back to the ferry on the harbour sidewalk.
